TRUE INDEPENDENT FILMS

Below we present a selection of films in their full lengths - films that have been at the festival and that are now available to watch online for free!

 

But first, we'd like to drive your attention to our Streamingsite Illambra, and the opportunity to stream festival programs we curate by becoming a Festival member on Patreon.

 

 

Illambra VoD - Unique Content & Support of Film Makers

- founded by Berlin Revolution Film Festival

 

For us it's first and foremost about quality true independent films finding a home online where they can be hosted and presented together in a way they deserve.

 

Witty, sincere, daring. Quiet, flamboyant, discrete. Happy, angry and rough – tied neither to style, genre or production type, the content is often no/low budget, obscure and experimental.

 

All revenue gathered from subscriptions and pay-ver-views is split 50/50 with film makers, as a user you do not only get access to unknown gems but you help support indie film making too!

 

 

Become a Festival Member on Patreon - Stream Festival Program online

 

Patreon allows for a donation system starting at 1$ where the host, in this case we, can offer things in return depending on what level of pledge the donations are set to. It also allows us to build a community of Patrons and set goals to work towards. It's a great platform that gives people who support us the ability to support, follow and enable goals we work towards.

 

We offer all our patrons free admittance to our events as well as online streaming access to the festival programs during the festival period, meaning you don't have to be in Berlin to see the films, you can sit at home wherever in the world!

 

GEMELOS (Twins)

Directed by: Pablo Radice

Genres: Documentary, Existential

Country of Origin: Argentina

 

"Nevertheless, life arises from death, and vice versa."

 

The Twin brothers Efrain and Jose are both medics. Where the one is an obstetrician, helping bring babies to the world, the other is a forensic doctor, examining corpses who were victims of violent crimes. A film about identity and extremes, that raises questions about life and death.

Soundprint

Directed by: Monteith McCollum

Genres: Experimental

The second film in a trilogy on sound. 

"SoundPrint" explores the marks left by sonic frequencies. Imagery from optical soundtracks and micro photography of records play against similar signals received by sand, water, and people. Sounds of the ocean and the Midshipman are the backdrop for a rich exploration of the subtleties of transcribed sound.
